Best of the Book Nook: Fearless Jones by Walter Mosley


Walter Mosley is one of those legendary talents. He can do it all, fiction, non-fiction; crime novels, mysteries, political commentary, science fiction, the man is a genius. I still cannot believe that he actually came out to Yellow Springs one day years ago to appear on the program.

He had just written the first book in a new mystery series that features Fearless Jones. Over the years since my one and only interview with Walter I have tried to schedule him again. So far it hasn't happened. As you listen to our conversation that day I think you'll understand why I would love to have him come back for another interview.

The Book Nook on WYSO is presented by the Greene County Public Library with additional support from Washington-Centerville Public Library,  Clark County Public LibraryDayton Metro LibraryWright Memorial Public Library, and Microsun Lamps.
